Swedish meatballs is a Christmas tradition within our extended family. This year, my wife and I were alone for Christmas and decided to make it ourselves. We chose a version with a rich, creamy roux-based gravy, served over homemade linguini with a side of steamed broccoli.
As a funny aside, my wife gave me a beautiful carving set as a Christmas gift. Very sharp indeed. I ended up cutting my finger. Not with the knife, but with the wrapping paper. Good grief!
